The farm has also partnered with multiple hotels in the nearby Richmond area as well as reasonable guest transportation options.

Named for its magnificent views of the scenic farmlands of Virginia, Fairview Farm provides just the right mixture of chic country southern charm with many modern comforts. Fairview has gorgeous sunsets with views of the distant Lynchburg mountain range and adjacent to Blenheim, a national historic landmark family farm. There is a picturesque large pond with fountain, gazebo and large dock, as well as vintage barns and one of the largest and oldest poplar trees in Virginia with an old fashioned swing for special photos. Fairview Farm's one hundred and fifteen acre estate has only had three owners since 1733, as part of a charter grant of King George, to Wiliam Mayo, the surveyor of the time. It operated as a dairy farm for over sixty years and is still farmed today for crops for Blenheim's adjacent cattle farm.
There are many props and extras included such as a 1951 F-1 completely restored red Ford pickup to an old red tractor. Our guests say we have considered every detail and we hope you will agree. Follow us on Pinterest under our Free Props Board and Instagram.
